Because the process
of gathering information on international editions is so very different
from that of other Hardy Boys information, I thought a seperate page of
thanks would be in order. These people have all helped me to obtain my
ultimate goal - that of which you see here.
First, to Sal, who taught
me how to fish instead of catching me one.
Second, to Nancy, for
doing her own brand of research.
to Kimber Wimmers, for populating my shelves with Dutch editions, sending
me information, and being a sounding board.
to Lea S. Fox, midnight mailer and compadre. And for the huge box of British
to the following:
Oka for working with a "foreigner" and sending me all ten Japanese Hardys.
Salvatore, who sold me French editions.
Persson for her continued help with the Swedish books.
Axe, nice man, model collector, and informer.

Helgadóttir for information on Icelandic editions.
